Hundreds of people lined the sides of Main Street for the annual Mardi Gras parade in Breckenridge on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 9. As floats meandered down the road, kids jostled each other around to catch beads flying through the air. These visitors and locals were spotted on the streets as the parade was gearing up to start.
